Bro. Frank Shumate - Pastor Emeritus
 
As Elijah "mentored" Elisha in the Old Testament, so it was the intention of the Pulpit Committee, the Congregation, and Brother Frank to "mentor" Brother Matt in all the many facets of the ministry of Gospel Light Baptist Church.  On June 1, 2021, Brother Frank transitioned to the title of Pastor Emeritus.
